Target faces criticism after gift card snafu

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More problems at Target: the big-box retailer says some customers were given gift cards that were not fully activated.

Now when people are trying to use them, it's causing a problem at the cash register.

Target isn't explaining what happened, but says it will honor the problematic cards.

Meanwhile, U.S. senators are calling for a congressional hearing on the data breach that affected 40 million debit and credit card numbers. They want the Senate Banking Committee to examine whether companies and banks are doing enough to protect consumers.
